“I’m Here to Feed the Alligator”

 

 

 

 

 

 

I find myself this morning in Florida between Jacksonville and Orlando, and there is a tale of an elderly man a ways inland who owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and citrus trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over.

He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond!

He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.

One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"

The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked."

Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."

Very funny, Joe... and sort of scary if you think of it as not a joke!

Good morning Joe. An oldie but still a goodie. As my son a University of Florida graduate would say: "gator bait"! Enjoy your day!

Loved it Joe! Doubt it took long before he got an eye full of them scurrying out of the pond!

Hi Joe- one thing we learned from our many years in Florida was that if there's water, assume that an alligator is around.
